What a "Kuya" means? Who is "Kuya"?
"Kuya" is a Filipino term of endearment and respect used for a male older than you and especially that you are close with. So you can call your older male brother, cousin, older male friend. Someone who takes care of you, protect you and trying everything he can, gives you something you want.
If you call a close someone who does something for you, it's 'kuya." It’s when Kuya cooks for you and just imagine Kuya preparing his delicious dishes for you every time. You would definitely want to be present at every dinner. Because everything is special, when it comes to Kuya.
That is the picture that will be always captured in the new restaurant in town, Kuya J.
We were excitingly witnessed an opening of the Kuya J Restaurant in SM Novaliches, Quirino Highway, Quezon City. Kuya J started the Filipino cuisine in Cebu and now is opening more here in Metro Manila.
Kuya J is a casual Filipino cuisine restaurant that offers great gastronomic delights using quality and unique tasting dishes in a homey dining experience that relaxes you, enveloping you with the warmth and care of a brother.

Kuya J values meaningful bonds above anything else. That is why he serves delectable Filipino dishes in a comfortable atmosphere. The interiors themselves feel a lot like Kuya’s room: the modern dining furniture, the warm lighting fixtures and the signature bookshelves filled with books of various topics. Once you step inside, you’ll be received with a wholehearted welcome and a good-natured staff.
Kuya J promotes family gatherings and love for food, that’s why affordability is a must. So don’t worry about the price points because Kuya J will always give a value for money. You’ll even be surprised at how much you can eat on a limited budget. At Kuya J’s, there’s more fun for everyone.
What can you expect from Kuya J? You can always count on him to adapt local cuisine and add a different spin to each dish. His signature dishes, namely Crispy Pata, Grilled Scallops, Lumpia Presko, Crispy Catfish and Tablea Coffee Flan are definitely a must try.
